I've created an action group to deploy my solar array, but now I'm safely in orbit, I have no idea how to actually do this. What do I need to do?

It's as simple as pressing the corresponding number (plus alt, possibly only on Mac). I haven't tested if it works with the number pad, but I know it works with the number row.

alt, plus the corresponding number for me! – fredley Dec 24 '12 at 19:14
I don't need to use alt – MBraedley Dec 24 '12 at 19:15
It's not alt+number, it's just number. Also of note, I have mine bound to the "Toggle Gimbal" option, and for some reason it ignores the first press of the button - that might be messing you up. – Tacroy Dec 24 '12 at 19:35
@MBraedley Maybe the alt thing is a Mac thing – fredley Dec 24 '12 at 21:13
It doesn't work on numpad in my experiences. – Rob Rose Apr 24 '15 at 15:43
